Bringing people together with good food
A new community garden for Craigshill
The community garden at Rowan Grove will be designed specifically for our tenants in the area. The garden will be planted in a gap site owned by us and will be developed in partnership with West Lothian Youth Action Project. This well-known community organisation will work to create the garden as a training base where people can learn how to grow their own food in a sustainable way. This will encourage home grown produce to be turned into healthy, inexpensive meals.
The community garden will include an abundance of flowers, shrubs, herbs and vegetables in raised beds and will include other facilities to encourage use of the garden by tenants and their families including children of all ages. It is envisaged the garden will evolve and grow as a sustainable dynamic greenspace for the benefit of our tenants and the wider community. Work on the site is due to start later in 2020.
